I´ve been there a couple of times ´cause I really enjoy knowing from the inside the history of this beautiful country. You´ll see objects from the most iconic battles and it´s heroes like Garibaldi. After you can have a coffee from the terrace and enjoy the most amazing view of Rome.

On a rainy afternoon we decided to explore this conglomeration of buildings which includes an art exhibition space, meeting rooms(?) and a lovely terrace cafe with great views, okay coffee and crappy crostata. The dual exhibition of Botero and Boldini was interesting but the audio guides were not in the least helpful or informative, at least not the English version.... More

The ENORMOUS white marble monument that dominates Piazza Venezia. From its terraces you can enjoy some of the best views over the city. It's HUGE so there is plenty of room, even with the crowds. It's a monument to Victor Emmanuel II, first king of united Italy.

Here is the Italian unification museum. The monument itself has a nice terrace with excellent views of the Imperial Forums

We were a little concerned about taking a city break in the city of Seven Hills with a wheelchair, but we need not have worried. Our experience was that Rome is very welcoming to people with restricted mobility and we were met with thoughtfulness and gentle assistance/guidance wherever we went. For the Edward Hopper Exhibition we turned up on the... More

This is an excellent monument located near piazza Campidellio and you can walk from here to coliseum and enjoy your time and also there are wonderful places and cafes to rest and have a break.

This huge building is quite spectacular. It is free to enter as long as you agree not to eat or sit on the steps as it is a memorial. You can walk around the back of the building and see spectacular views. We didn't take the elevator to the roof but still thought the views were great.

Very nice monument; did not see the exhibit and since my hotel was close by I had multiple chances to see it. Best viewed at night; also some nice photo opportunities of the Roman ruins at sunset in the adjacent areas behind Santa Maria di Loreto.

The Star Wars exhibition is really expensive for what it is. It's basically a collection of figures rather than anything else the staff imagine it to be. The Hopper exhibition is also expensive but at least there is more to see, with text and audioguides explaining extra details to you. Sadly, the exhibition book is unavailable in English which is...

As you walk around the corner, this hugely impressive building comes into view. You do wonder how on earth these buildings are ever constructed such is the splendour. Well worth going to the top of the building in the lift to get a superb view over Rome.

Staying in Piazza Venezia / Ancient City

Neighbourhood Profile
Piazza Venezia / Ancient City
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here. Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very epicenter of the Eternal City. Within a 360-degree turn, Roman history unrolls in front of you, from its ancient beginnings to its 21st century transformations. Whether it’s those historical playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this neighbourhood packs a cultural punch and then some. Screaming scooters, battling buses, crazy cars, and lots of foot traffic converge in the area all day long. By dusk, a different vibe emerges as the neighbourhood quiets down. Don't be surprised if you find yourself passing through the Piazza Venezia at least once a day, since it’s the most direct way to get from one side of town to another.
